Bryony HarrisI am Bryony and I have been practicing yoga and Pilates for 15 years. By practicing daily it allows me to feel more light, spacious and free. I am a registered 500 hour Yoga teacher and have a YMCA Level 3 Diploma in teaching Pilates. The benefits of yoga and Pilates are amazing. Both disciplines increase your strength both physically and mentally, improve your posture and balance thus reducing the risk of injury and allow you to connect to your highest self: the best version of you. I teach Vinyasa Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Pilates classes weekly at the clinic.
By practicing yoga and Pilates daily it allows me to travel through life with more ease. I feel stronger both physically and mentally, feel more centered and calm and more able to cope with life's rich tapestry. My classes are deliberately kept small - max of eight students per class so I can give everyone my full attention and modify positions and poses as necessary.
The Old Rectory Clinic is located with easy access from Yate, Chipping Sodbury, Frampton Cotterell, Coalpit Heath, Winterbourne, Westerleigh, Thornbury and the surrounding areas.

I have seen just how effective Pilates can be in not only helping the rehabilitation process, but also as a helpful adjunct to the prevention of injury. Many of my clients newly introduced to Pilates appreciate the beneficial effects of the technique, from improvement of posture to regaining more mobility and freedom of movement.
I teach the Stott Pilates Method to bring the highest quality, safest and most effective workouts. I have been teaching and training in the fitness industry for over 15 years. My passion for Pilates began four years ago when I sustained a shoulder and hip injury whilst teaching. I tried everything to sort out the problem but it was not improving. This was when I was introduced to Pilates which not only rehabilitated my shoulder and hip injury but improved my strength and flexibility. It also became a means to injury prevention, control and mind and body awareness.
I came to Yoga quite late in life, thinking that I needed to do something to keep myself flexible as I grew older. I attended my first Dru Yoga class and found not only a physical practice, but a complete wellbeing system. From the very first, I tried to practice most days as I felt so good, mentally and physically. When the opportunity presented itself to train as a Dru Yoga teacher I was thrilled to be able to learn to pass on this beautiful, gentle form of Yoga.
I've practiced yoga for many years (after finding myself drawn to it after suffering from back problems). Very quickly after my first class I became hooked and noticed the many benefits, both physically and mentally. I finally decided to fly to India to do my yoga teacher training, during my time there I could fully immerse myself into the spirituality of the practice.
I have studied with many teachers across the country and have been teaching since 2012. I have a British Wheel of Yoga Diploma in teaching yoga (Level 4 on the National Framework), taught by Andrea Newman (now part of the SWYA). I came to yoga in January of 2009 mid-way through my bachelor's degree with an inquisitive attitude and a stiff back.
